Mo Rows for Havens Hospices

M

o and Keith took on a 100,000m tandem indoor row challenge at Hockley Gym hoping to beat the world record of 6 hours, 15 minutes and 8 seconds while also fundraising for Havens Hospices which incorporates Fair Havens Hospice for adults, Little Havens Hospice for children and The J’s Hospice for young people. The duo not only broke the record, but also set a time that is going to be very hard to beat in the future! They have also raised over £600 so far for the charity. Mo said, “This was a difficult challenge for both of us, but knowing that we were raising important funds for a charity that cares for those with life-limiting illnesses motivated us to keep going and to become world record holders. Many of our members actually volunteer for the charity, so we have learnt from them how vital the care they provide is. I would like to thank all our amazing members who not only sponsored us but also cheered us on throughout the day, especially as we were getting near the end and we were starting to feel the burn!” Hockley Gym 01702 208 771

The parish church of St Peter & St Paul has stood as an abiding sign of God’s presence in the village for nearly eight centuries. It is a beautiful building, rich in history. But it is no mere monument to times past; our church is home to a living community of faith. Holy Communion is celebrated every Sunday at 10 am, and every Wednesday at 9.30 am. A warm welcome awaits you. And if you would like to discuss a wedding or a baptism, or you would simply like to know more about our church’s life and the faith we share, we would be pleased to hear from you.

A social gathering for those that have lost a loved one, to get together and chat over tea/coffee and of course cake.

W

e have now been running Wing Chun Kung Fu classes for children in Hockley for two years, it's fantastic to see young people join the club some of whom may have had no martial arts experience whatsoever. We teach children from reception age to 7 in our Snake & Crane classes and from 8-16 in our Junior & Teen classes. All classes are age specific with a combination of reactionary games, curriculum work so the children can work towards their next belt. Structured drills also take place were the children have the chance to try out the techniques they have learnt by hitting pads, blocking and dodging soft padded blocking sticks. We also grade our students for their belt promotions three times a year at Clements Hall Leisure Centre. We run our Junior Life Mastery programme where we focus on a different life skills each term. If they successfully complete the programme they are awarded an exclusive wrist band and each completed subject goes towards our student of the year award. We also run a personal power programme for our juniors and teens, in this programme we focus on the most common type of attacks young people may face on the street and teach them how they can deal with these situations effectively. Please visit www.meridianhockley.com or www.meridianrochford.com We have six classes during the week; Mon eve in Rochford, Thurs eve in Hockley and Sat mornings in Hockley. See advert on page 10.
